The Walk in Detail

A pleasant walk through open grassy woodland to a fern gully containing a series of waterfalls. The track links 3 picnic areas.

Directions:

At the campground pick up the clearly marked Middle Creek Track near the picnic shelter. Continue on this until you reach Bailes picnic area. Cross over the road and continue on the track as it follows the creek and then climbs a little as it goes up the gully.

There are a number of steps in this part of the track, which lead to the lower parts of the falls. The falls are reached through the Ferntree carpark, on the track marked Waterfalls Nature Walk. There are some steep sections here, but steps and hand rails are provided to take you in a circuit walk of the falls.

A small side track will take you to the Cascade Falls. Complete the loop and return to your car by retracing your steps along the Middle Creek.

Getting There

Take the Western Highway to Beaufort. Travel west through Beaufort for 11.8 km and turn right onto Ferntree Gully Road.  Follow this for 7.5 km, ignoring any side roads, until you enter the Mt Buangor State Park.  The first turn left will take you to Middle Creek camping ground.
